The negativity on this thread is amazing. 3 league games in, new manager, new coaches flashes of decent football bloody hell give them a chance at least. May not be the coaching team we wanted but its the one we have. Cheer up guys, sun is shining and the beers cold, well it is here on my hols

It's not the coaching team people aren't happy with, it's the lack of ambition in the transfer window

Hi very long time reader, and I usually love reading what people have got to say but do people really think we are relegation candidates if we don’t win our next match. I know it has not been the grea

Saturday 17th August 2019 - 3pm KO - Ewood Park Preview: Both sides come into this fixture following home league cup fixtures against lower league opposition - Blackburn oversaw a battling O

Ok far too many members have now been made aware that in the opinion of Riverside Dreamer moderating action by Boro_Unger was unfair and uncalled for and some members were siding with his views.

We were in the Prem just three seasons ago. We’ve gone so far backwards it’s almost criminal. 

Yes we were, but not really.......we got there by accident, GD and even then we were only visiting weren't we?

I'd try 4231 put Browne at CAM but you can't take McNair off and you'd need Howson to sit as well so you'd take Wing off which people wouldn't be happy about so how does he meaningfully change this game I don't know.

Blackburn are literally so bad aswell.

why are we going long to Britt now? He’s one of the worst players with his back to goal. Start passing the ball about, one of the midfielders had to get it off the defence. Missing Clayton?

We were playing long balls with clayton in the team too  

 

I just dont like our midfield. They're all good players  but theres not a creative bone between them. Wing has a great shot and is tidy on the ball but rarely creates chances, mcnair works hard and drives forward but again doesnt create chances. Howson is just the most tidy unremarkable footballer we have. Brings nothing to us. 

 

Then when you consider our front 3 includes two players who 12 months ago we wanted nowhere near the squad and one who isnt being played to his strengths by a second manager in a row... it all seems rather grim.

Started alright, looked the better side. But then started to get overrun and balls switched across the pitch to Gallagher especially causing havoc, even with Friend one of our better players.

Need to see more from Wing, doesn't look the same player this season. Very clumsy in and out of possession.

Johnson and Fletcher have to work harder.

Positives: Shotton and Friend both playing well.

I'd go for a 433 and try something different. 4231 doesn't look effective.

Why, we know money was tight and we needed to look at the youth team and cheaper signings. Gone are the days of multi million signings just for the sake of it.

I may sound like a broken record but unlike what Pulis, the club and the Gazette tell us it doesn't actually cost a lot to sign good players if you look anywhere other than England

More grim when the only attacking option on the bench is Browne and a 19 year old.

Why the f*** does Dijksteel once again look devoed of any confidence? Looks like a kid who doesn’t want to be there. Bola was the same. Dijksteel hasn’t passed the halfway line once again. 

You know when Pulis and Woodgate said you don't just throw kids in at the deep end willy-nilly because it can ruin them? Case and point.

I’d take Dijksteel off for Browne and put Howson at right back.

A second comment to say that in this thread. I wonder if we'll get no examples from you, as well.

Dijksteel was integral to a Charlton team that got promoted and he’s 22. I don’t see the argument that he’s a kid.

    • If Muniz does fall through we really do need to get some players in sharpish We've lost 30 goals from the players who've left, including 6 of our 8 top scorers (assuming Akpom leaves) and so far have brought in 15 goals with Ikpeazu, Crooks and Ameobi  This for a side that's already notoriously low scoring and lacking in creativity What worries me is the absence of links to wingers and attacking midfielders other than Lazaro and a few washed up has beens  11 days till Fulham...    
    • What will happen is; Muniz will go to Athletico We will bid for Lazaro We will agree a deal for Lazaro  Fulham will bid for lazaro We will buy Smith from Rotherham
    • Get begging Muniz to join us Twitter link
    • He will undoubtedly sign for Fulham and play for one of the most inoffensive clubs in English football in one of the least intimidating grounds in England.  He won't have a clue though. 
    • Yeah that is what I meant. Fulham never technically beat us to Bryan. They beat Villa to him. We were technically not in running for Bryan as far as player was concerned. His 3rd and final choice.
